Benjamin König also formerly known as Aran is an artist that I could not pass by without honouring his work in this section. Generally speaking, he is a multi-faceted craftsman who is not only great at painting vivid artworks, but also making music.
He used be a member of the foundational German atmospheric black metal duo Lunar Aurora from 1994 to 2012; leaving an abundant legacy of multiple critically acclaimed full-lengths. Alongside, he has been creating traditional paintings that are inspired by fairy tales and all sorts of darkly things.
I’ve selected some of my favourite works of Benjamin’s, which you can explore below. As stated in an interview with him, he uses both a mixture of digital and traditional techniques to realize his ideas.
